Let's Localise - Connecting Schools with Corporate Responsibility Initiatives, Volunteers & Funding

Let's Localise

 

LetsLocalise, founded in Berkshire in Nov 2018 is a Digital Social Innovation that aims to tap into unused reservoir of community goodwill to empower educators across the country.

The seed of the idea called LetsLocalise was planted by two secondary school students. In 2016, as they started their secondary school, they were overwhelmed by the scale of the funding shortages and their impact on students. These ranged from lack of lab equipment to reduced enrichment trips to outdated sports facilities to irregular supply of cover teachers.

They explored avenues to raise support for their school by conducting more than 1,000 interviews and surveys. It was clear that there is a deep well of goodwill in the community and a desire among many to help schools actively with skills, expertise and donations. All it needed was a way of connecting the goodwill to the requirements of schools. The founders then put together a plan and built a digital platform where teachers and schools could tap into community support and pledge their time and money. Now, we're open to every state school in the UK.
